It has come to my attention that more than a few people use Patreon that don't really seem to grasp the concept of what's going on. Patreon is a service that allows creators to receive compensation for their work on a regular basis.
This could be per item, day, week, month, and so on. The system is quite flexible and allows for a variety of creators to offer their various creations to the world in exchange for an amount of money.
The problem is that there are a lot of people Doin' it Wrong(tm).
